Get Ready to Laugh....

Alright...let's just get this out of the way right now.
This morning I was enjoying my usual ritual of coffee and blog perusing. It's so quiet in the mornings here...birds singing...breeze rustling through the trees.
As I was trying to navigate through this new territory of blogville, I clicked on what I thought was the button to follow a new blog I had found.
Well folks....
I am now MY OWN follower.
Yep, that's right....I am follower #60 on my own blog!
Go ahead - laugh - I'll wait.................................




OK so now that we've all had a good giggle I wanted to share a few pictures of my morning walk with you. Sorry no stitchy photos today as I haven't done any stitching since yesterday afternoon when I last posted.






This one isn't a pic of my walk....but of a beautiful basket of eggs that we received from the farmer down the road. He's the same one that has the miniature horses.











Now how do you like the look on this big boy's face? I don't think he thought that much of me so I clicked quickly and moooooved on.










Here's another one of Momma with her new baby. If you look closely you can see his ears sticking up out of the grass in front of her. Mr. Farmer is concerned about the new little one...something is wrong with his back legs. It's so pitiful to see him try to walk but he manages.





My new desktop.












About two weeks ago another farmer's mare a bit farther on down the road had her stallion! You should see this whopper's legs! He's long and lean and will be very handsome as he grows up.







Here in the country some folks don't tie their dogs up, which is fine with me as long as they are friendly. I think it's good to let them roam around the farm. This handsome pooch became my personal guide for a while during my walk this morning.








I thought this was a good shot looking down the entryway to an old barn used to store farming equipment.




In response to a couple questions/comments:
Jules: My husband retired from the Navy after 23 years as a Masterchief. He served on alot of aircraft carriers and did two tours of instructor duty. I am so VERY PROUD of him. I prefer to call him Masterchief on here. It gives me shivers!!

Deb: The scissor frog top and bottom were both bought at an Antique Mall not far from me here in KY. I picked up the top and then went looking through the HUGE building for a bottom piece it would fit in to. It's a sherbet cup, I believe but I think it's cute.

Meadows08: No, I don't get bored with stitching all in one color. You'd think I would but I guess I like not having to worry about what symbol is what color, etc...

That's it for today friends. Thank you for taking a stroll with me this morning. We must do it again soon. It's so peaceful in this part of the country. On a calm day we can hear the boats down on the lake.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and for spending a moment with me here. It is so greatly appreciated! Hopefully there will be stitchy progress to show in the next couple days.

***Masterchief would like to thank those of you who showed an interest in the BBQ giveaway possibility*** Meanwhile I'm sitting here thinking....
"You can't be serious, BBQ sauce on a cross stitch blog"???

Until next time....

Love all of your beautiful photos. I live in a different type of farm area --a cranberry bog! I'll post pictures on my blog as the season progresses. I enjoyed our tour of your area.

Oh...I've done that, too! One time I got all excited because I had hit this Follower milestone (some particular # of followers, I can't remember what now), but then realized that I had only hit it because I was unwittingly following myself. Slightly embarrassing!

Lovely walk!

I'd be glad to win a bottle of BBQ sauce if it's Head Country. :D Or, if it were better than that type, even better still! :D

Beautiful monochrome stitching. :)

LOL at becoming a follower on your own blog. I purposely don't play around with anything on mine because I'm afraid of doing something to it. I am now on the hunt for a dish like you used for your scissor frog. I really love it. My sis is coming in to town in a few weeks and we scour antique stores, so maybe I'll be able to come up with something then.

And I love all the pictures. Life looks so idyllic there. So calming!

Beautiful photos...thanks for sharing!

Jules said...

Hey, why not?! Stranger things have happened (re: the BBQ sauce), LOL!

A very big thank you to your Masterchief for his 23 years of service. I just think this would be my 18th year of service if I had stayed in.

The photos are simply gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your walk with us!!

You live in a beautiful area! Your pictures are very pretty. BBQ sauce sounds like a fabulous giveaway haha and I love your new desktop! ;)

Deborah said...

I love the pictures of your stroll. I will look forward to the next one. BBQ sauce is as good as any other giveaway, i think.

Peggy Lee you are a wonderful photographer!!! I love the farm shots, reminds me of going to see my grandparents as a kid.

What will you do with all those eggs? I suggest angel food cake and pecan pie!

This made me laugh out loud "I prefer to call him Masterchief on here. It gives me shivers!!" Too cute! Gotta love a man in uniform!

Have a great weekend!

I love your post, what a wonderful thing to have a neighbor who brings you farm fresh eggs.

No laughing here...I follow my own blog too!

Love the Country Life pictures! I think I would have heart failure if I saw that dog/wolf!
